About Care Net
Care Net's integrity and leadership in the pro-life movement is indisputable.
“It’s imperative that pro-life individuals put their beliefs into action and support organizations like Care Net and their local pregnancy centers.” - Lakita Garth
Choices can be positive or negative. Some choices affect the course of a person's life more than others. The decision to participate in abortion is such a life-altering choice. As feminist writer Frederica Mathewes-Green wrote in a well-known essay, "No woman wants an abortion as she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion as an animal, caught in a trap, wants to gnaw off its own leg. Abortion is a tragic attempt to escape a desperate situation by an act of violence and self-loss."
Care Net, with its affiliate pregnancy centers, and through the Pregnancy Decision Line, helps prevent forced, coerced and otherwise unwanted abortions by promoting positive life choices. The legality of abortion is controversial, but we should all be able to agree that anyone who wants to avoid the violence of abortion should be able to do so. Every day, lives are saved and women and families are spared the painful effects of abortion through Care Net's work.
Care Net supports more than 1100 affiliate pregnancy centers across North America. Pregnancy centers have been widely noted as the "kind, calm, nonjudgmental" face of the pro-life movement (TIME, 2008). Our affiliate pregnancy centers are faith-based organizations with deep roots in their communities. Each center empowers women and men facing unplanned pregnancies with practical help, emotional support, and information about their pregnancy options.
Pregnancy Decision Line
Where do young women go when their pregnancy feels like a desperate situation? The internet, of course? And when they do, the Pregnancy Decision Line (PDL) is there to meet them at their point of need. Our trained pregnancy coaches provide accurate information, compassionate support, and referrals for practical help. After connecting with a coach, most contacts are eager to visit a pregnancy center for ongoing support.
Why Care Net?
Because we believe that no one should be forced to choose between their preborn baby and their future, Care Net empowers life-affirming choices by providing accurate information in a compassionate environment through our affiliated pregnancy centers and the Pregnancy Decision Line.
With those who have already experienced the loss of abortion, we share hope and the redemptive power of forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
The results speak for themselves.
